(CNSNews.com) – A large majority of Americans say they want a smaller government that provides them with fewer services, according to a new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News. But the Washington Post story about the poll makes no mention of this fact.
The poll asked: “Generally speaking, would you say you favor smaller government with fewer services, or larger government with more services?”
Fifty-eight percent said they favor a smaller government with fewer services, and only 38 percent said they favor a larger government with more services.
The Post did not mention the results from this poll question in its news story about the poll.
The poll surveyed a random sample of 1,083 American adults from Jan. 12-15, 2010.
